First time on a GT-R… now?! いまさらGT-R試乗記

If some of you have never been on R35, this video demonstrate how a passenger blushes and gets all excited about the car. It may not be the world’s sexiest car but has the potential to match or even threatens world’s best. Also, he has a point. It would be one of the best cars in terms of value for money especilly when purchased second-hand…






MY2014 NISMO GT-R caught on camera! 2014年式ニスモGT-Rがカメラに捕獲された!

Gmotors.co.uk has scoop photos of MY2014 Nismo GT-R! Under this black and white camouflage we can spot an updated front bumper with a new front splitter and revised rear bumper with new vents. The prototype also has the typical six-spoke Nismo alloys wheels and a new big rear spoiler, which was removed for road testing.

Modified 3.8l twin-turbo V6 is expected to produce over 570ps. The GT-R Nismo will also undergo a major weight loss thanks to extensive use of carbon fibre, apparently. The GT-R Nismo is going to debut most likely at the Tokyo Motor Show in November.

R35 is being compared against the new SLC AMG?! R35はSLC AMGのテスト車両比較対象?!

We don’t know whether the Mercedes/AMG SLC will act as a replacement for the SLS AMG or take a spot right under it in Mercedes’ sports car lineup. What we have heard about the SLC, is that it will ride on a modified version of the SLS’s front-mid-engine platform, and will have an entry-level price of around $100,000, or about half the cost of the SLS.

The prototype of the SLC that’s pictured here driving on and around the Nürburgring track is still wrapped in silky black tape. Aside from the obvious choice that is the Porsche 911 series, Stuttgart is also eyeing the Nissan GT-R as we can see on the scoop photos featured on Carscoops, if not for its looks, it’s undisputed performance credentials for sure.

Codenamed C190, the SLC is rumored to have up to three turbocharged V8 powerplants delivering up to 600 horses, with an entry level turbocharged V6 also being considered. The SLC is likely to arrive in the market within the next two years.

SLS AMGの弟分となるのか、後継車となるのか定かではないSLC AMGですが、開発自体は着々と進んでいるようです。SLSのプラットホームを用いて、1000万円クラスの車両になる、という情報だけは漏れ伝わっているのですが、正式なところは何も分かりません。

また、漏れ伝わっている情報はSLC(コードネームC190)は3タイプのV8ターボエンジン(最強モデルは600ps 程度)が用意され、エントリーモデルのみV6ターボエンジンを搭載するそうです。写真を見るかぎりガルウィングではなさそうですから、やっぱり弟分なのかなぁ?
